French Crullers

Yield: 12

Milk 1 cup (227g)

Water 1 cup (227g)

Butter 1 ½ sticks (170g)

Salt ½ teaspoon

Sugar 1 teaspoon

All purpose flour 2 cups (270g)

Eggs 6

Egg whites 2 (60g)

Directions:

  1. Preheat a pot of vegetable oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. The oil should be at least 6” deep. Meanwhile, prepare the cruller dough.
  2. In a medium size pot, heat milk, water, butter, salt and sugar to a boil.
  3. Add the flour all at once, stir with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the mixture forms a ball of dough. Stir the dough on the heat for about 1 minute.
  4. Remove from the heat and transfer into a bowl. Stir for 3-5 minutes to allow the dough to cool slightly.
  5. Add the eggs and egg whites slowly, careful to make sure that the egg is completely mixed in before adding more. This can be done by hand or in a mixer on low speed.
  6. Once mixture is smooth and shiny, transfer into a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  7. Pipe 3” rings onto a slotted spoon and carefully drop into the oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Place on a paper towel and allow to cool.
  8. Dip in glaze or toss in cinnamon sugar.
